Descripción Chronicle. 1 No Jacket(s), 2012. soft. Estado de conservación: New. If you've played Scrabble, then you have had an argument with someone you know; few games invite so many differing interpretations; consider this witty book a secret weapon, filled as it is with scads of fully approved words ranging from the surprisingly simple to the downright esoteric. Here are lists of proper names that make the cut (brad, josh, molly, randy), Greek words that have gone mainstream (calypso, muse, hector), usable words from Lewis Carroll's poem "Jabberwocky," and a complete list of all 101 acceptable two-letter words. David Bukszpan also includes a history of Scrabble and some of the game's all-time records, while amusing engravings appear throughout."[This is] a fresh, amusing, 21st-century guide to everything Scrabble."—Will Shortz 176.
